: Forty Minutes: Travelling Hopefully

Forty minutes of documentary. A series of films portraying issues, institutions and individuals.
You've a sporting chance of making a passable documentary if your subject is ready and willing to co-operate with the cameras. But if he isn't, what can the programme maker do? When producer David Jones and journalist fellow-traveller Kevin Page set out on their voyage of exploration, they had high hopes of tracking down their quarry. But in deciding to penetrate the world of the industrial and political lobbyist they have taken on an elusive and cunning animal. The lobbyist thrives on anonymity - his low profile is a sure means of defence as he goes about his work of influencing politicians and top civil servants. Show him a camera and he goes to earth. After 40 minutes of travelling hopefully neither Jones nor Page can be sure whether they have arrived - or whether they have simply shown that it takes two to tango.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
